Newcomer Ken Alfonso Is Added To The Cast Of 'The Rich Man's Daughter'

KEN ALFONSO, one of GMA's upcoming actors, hosted the opening of Shamcey Supsup and Lloyd Lee's restaurant, Pedro & Coi, at Fisher Mall since she and Shamcey have the same manager, Jonas Gaffud of Mercator Talent Agency. Ken is happy that right after his stint in the afternoon soap "Kailan Ba Tama ang Mali", GMA has now added him to the cast of the primetime show, "The Rich Man's Daughter".

"I play the husband of Stephanie Sol na iniwan niya, pati yung anak namin, kasi sumama siya sa isang tomboy, si Chynna Ortaleza as Batchi Luna," he says.

Since he is a good singer, Ken is also now semi-regular in 'Sunday All Stars' and he's about to record his first album, a combination of original songs and revivals. He is also hosting his own travel show on GMA News TV, "Touchdown". "We just concluded our first season featuring travels to other countries and various local cities," he says. "Rest muna kami and we will be back on the air in September."

He will soon make his first movie with Regal Entertainment and also got his first endorsement, Diamond Rental Car, that features him on a billboard in EDSA. When he's not busy taping, Ken is serious in improving his craft as an actor and takes the GMA acting workshop under Laurice Guillen.
"Naka-four sessions na ako. Kasama ko sina Max Cinco, Aljur Abrenica and other Kapuso stars. I'm really learning so much from it compared to other workshops I've taken before kasi ang galing talaga mag-facilitate ni Direk Laurice Guillen."
